    See your doctor or fertility specialist. If after 4 months no has happened, it would be recommended to get checked..

    how do you know it is you.....maybe it is him that has a problem.  Seek medical advice instead of assuming you're the problem!

    Eat healthier foods like Dates, Pineapple , Badam , Cashew nuts and try to know the correct ovulation period and date. By engaging in sex at this time , you will conceive

    If you are under 35, you are not generally considered infertile.  Achieving pregnancy can sometimes take a little time.  As the others suggest, you could seek medical help but 4-5 months time is not a long time to try and conceive.

    If you are trying to conceive, then I recommend good preconception care starting with a taking a multivitamin that has at least 500mg of folic acid - this helps reduce birth defects and is important to take prior to conception as the egg takes 3 months to mature before it is released from the ovary.

    It took me two years to get pregnant after I went off birth control.  After a little over a year I went to the local herb store and bought some fertility pills.  I can't remember what they where called or if they helped.  But I did finally get pregnant.  I also tried everything people suggested.  Like not going to the bathroom after sex, putting your feet over your head after sex, and trying all kinds of different positions.

    4 to 5 months is no time at all.  Women are not baby factories, you know - you can't get pregnant to order!

    One of my friends had the same problem but they tried for nearly two years. Then she tried the Billings Method and got pregnant in two months.

    If you were taking pills before, it could be that the medication is still in your system. Sometimes medication can take 4-6 month before it is eliminated in your body completely, just like the Depovera shot. Some women, with depovera takes them 6 months before they start menstrating again.

    I'm in a similar situation.  I'm in my late 20's.  When I asked my ob/gyn about my fertility concerns she said that I had to have unprotected sex for a year before she would consider ordering any tests.  It's been eight months for us trying to conceive and nothing yet.

    The simplest thing to do would be for both of you to get physicals from your primary care doctor.  Sometimes your overall health may be affecting your fertility.  Also do not be afraid to ask your boyfriend to have his sperm checked.  It takes two to make a baby and women tend to get blamed more often for failure to conceive than they deserve.

    Also the direct answer to your question about fertility pills would be to consult an ob/gyn.
